I usually don’t bother blogging about these simple based chat systems that are similar to BlogChat since there are just too many to mention these days. There are so many of them out there these days that you can find one around any corner of the Internet. Most are done pretty well and are free.
Here is yet another one called HipChat but I was surprised to see that they are actually charging a monthly fee to use this. Can anybody seriously be paying for such a thing? With all the other free chat services out there as well as a ton of other tools that do the job even better like any instant messenger program, Google Wave or the like, why would anyone in their right mind pay for such a thing.
Granted it might be hip but other than that it doesn’t do anything an existing service already does.
And the pricing is not even that cheap!!!
I should mention that this one is NOT web based but rather an Adobe AIR application. But the idea is the same in that it is pretty simple and made to work across a wide range of operating systems.
